Large map of the Americas with a rudimentary shape for Alaska, here called Aliaska. The United States is shown confined east of the Mississippi River. The western part of North America is bisected by a huge mountain range labeled The Stony Mountains and is shown as completely unexplored with a few suspected rivers delineated by dotted lines. Map extends to show the Sandwich Islands, Britain and Europe, and western Africa.

Crisp impression and original hand coloring in outline. Wide, original margins on thick paper. A few small spots in map, else very good. A little marginal staining, away from map image.
